Re: Forum upgraded to phpBB3

I'm looking into making .htaccess rewrite rules which will parse incoming links for the old forum and automatically redirect to the proper URL on the new forum. I'll play around with it and see what I can figure out. That way, you won't need to update any of the old links. It appears you did it, I ...

You don't need to use the batch files. Those are just for Qbasic. Try compiling them in Linux with QB64. Does CHAIN work in Linux? Ok, yea that dose work, just compiling them 1 at a time, it did compile the qbasic. too but on that all I get is a black screen, but if I compile a chapter it runs fine.

We could use an update in participation around here! All I do anymore is control spammers.

Is the link to QBASICS.zip in your signature, the converted version, for qb64 ? that would be a good announcement, or update
